Water cooled 1080ti underperforming

You can find my build here. The issue I’m having is that it seems that the graphics card is overheating possibly because of air in the waterblock. I was playing Rainbow 6 siege on originally on max settings 1080p which seems like it would be no problem for a 1080ti, but I was only getting around 120 FPS and it would frequently dip to around 20. I opened task manager on my other monitor and saw that the game was at 100% gpu usage and only 50% cpu. After closing the game out I opened EVGA and asus’ software to check temps and the cpu temp was in the 30s while the gpu was at 80. That was a minute or two after I closed out the game so I imagine it was running even hotter while gaming. I also had similar experience for battlefield 4 if that helps.

Reinstall the GPU block, that should help. You might've put on too little TIM on it, I'm not sure, but it definitely shouldn't get that high.

Did you peel off the plastic on the block? that might help. JayzTwoCents had the same issue once :)

Rainbow Six gives me random drops as well. I have a 1080 and run 2160x1440 (60Hz) max settings and it gets random drops too. Rainbow Six, has what I have heard called the "100% cpu bug" where it randomly maxes out your cpu and dops your fps for a few seconds or so.
